“Horizon” is on the horizon 26.2.2013 EIT ICT Labs Kai Huotari Co-Location Centre Manager EIT ICT Labs Helsinki Agenda - EIT initiative Our Mission The Way We Operate The Helsinki Node How To Get Involved EIT Initiative Tackling the European Paradox The European Paradox refers to the presumption that EU member states play a leading global role in terms of top-level scientific output, but lag behind in the ability of converting this strength into wealth-generating innovations. The EIT was established as a new EU instrument for promoting innovation in Europe: from idea to product, from lab to market, from student to entrepreneur. It does not replace other existing EU initiatives (e.g. EU Framework Programmes), but adds to them by setting its focus on bringing research results to market EIT ICT Labs General Overview | Page 5 The EIT and its KICs The European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) was legally established in 2008 as an independent agency within the EU It funds Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) Official call and selection of the first three KICs in 2009 KICs First KICs fully operational in December 2010 Climate KIC EIT ICT Labs General Overview | Page 6 EIT ICT Labs KIC InnoEnergy Our Mission Our mission is to turn Europe into a global leader in ICT innovation, creating value and jobs for Europeans Innovate across Education, Research and Business Creating a new breed EIT Master of

help SME’s to grow to European level Entrepreneurial Talent Scouting link entrepreneurs to innovators Action Lines for Societal Challenges In Smart Spaces we will create intelligent environments that facilitate everyday practices, create richer user experiences and enhance the users’ awareness of local opportunities in a resource and cost efficient way. In Smart Energy Systems we address the issue of increasing energy efficiency via ICT enabled power grids, as well as energy efficient ICT solutions - green ICT. In Health and Well-being we will improve the quality of everyday life via the development of ICT enabled services supporting a cost effective sustainable healthy lifestyle, as well as ambient assisted living. In Digital Cities of the Future we improve the living conditions for citizens in large urban conglomerations via ICT enabled solutions in the areas of security, pollution, transportation, and resource management (e.g. water). In Future Media and Content Delivery we develop of a powerful and open ICT infrastructure, capable of delivering rich data-intensive media and content storage services, at competitive costs, across administrative domains, ensuring quality of service. In Intelligent Transportation Systems (under construction) we enhance services for people using all kinds of transportation systems.
